There was once a man in the Land of Uz whose name was Job. He was a good man who loved God and hated evil. Now Job was exceedingly wealthy. His possessions included 7,000 sheep, 3,000 camels, 500 teams of oxen, and 500 donkeys. He also had seven noble sons, three beautiful daughters, many servants, and a very large household. He was in fact the richest man in all the East.
